Creative Resources for the Early Childhood Classroom.

Creative Resources for the Early Childhood Classroom. Judy Herr and Yvonne Libby Larson. Albany: Delmar/Thomson Learning (800-730-2214), 2000. Illus., softcover, 674 pp., $49.95.

The third edition of this omnibus idea book is even larger than previous editions. Directed towards preschool and kindergarten levels, key features of this thematically based book include hundreds of art activities relating to themes such as birds, numbers, homes, and sports. Each of the 67 themes is introduced with goals, concepts to learn, and vocabulary lists. This is followed by a suggested bulletin board, parents' letter, and recommended activities related to arts and crafts, music, science, drama, social studies, and other curricular and activity areas. The overall array of ideas makes this a helpful resource for early childhood educators.
